Cleaning the aquarium glass shoudl be a weekly task during the water change, at least the front glass. I have one of those scrapers with a sponge-type end that I run over the inside glass on the front of every tank whether I see anything or not. Doing this will get the algae at the first stage and you won't have it on the glass. The side and rear glass I usually leave, or if I see green algae forming I sometimes get it. I only have one tank where I see this.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
